Thread: Ripple

  1. #1

    Default Ripple

    I didn't forget the "forgotten color" thread on another forum and had to order up some tying thread because it looked so cool, but the Danvilles lay dormant for a few months......what to tie? Claret.

    Ghetto's folks and teen's have a lot going on together, not much moo-la and a popular weekend buzz was a 6 pack and a bottle of Ripple. Yah-who? Most of you won't have the slightest idea what Ripple is cause it's no longer made so sub the beer and the poison you glugged with your buddies. Know what I'm talkin' bout ?

    "Ripple"....the fly:

    Hook: a wet fly hook, a sinker, something to get it happy and down down down.....down
    Thread: 6/0 Danville Wine color
    Tail: blurred white hackle fibers
    Tag: lightning silver flat tinsel
    Body: Ripple Pagan Red dubbing in a whirling loop and eye flash white oval tinsel rib
    Wing: mallard quill with wine spilled slips
    Hackle collar: grizzly dyed ....empty Ripple bottle green

    There is a need to fish, to be in the water. It soothes the soul.

    In my misdirected youth it was Boone's Farm Apple wine and, later, lots of paying obeisance at the ceramic altar.

    And for those old enough to recall "Sanford and Son", Fred's favorite drink was:

    Champipple... Champagne and Ripple

    And his favorite snack (in honor of Cinco de Mayo) was:

    Holey Moley

    Swiss cheese and Guacamole

    Growing up in "Da Hood" (Oakland, CA) and having worked at a liquor store in the 1960s, I can tell you two of the other favorites were Chateau LaSalle and Thunderbird.

    "THUNDERBIRD! What's the price? 50 twice..."

    Fred: "Ah...59!"

    "Good year?"

    Fred: "Nah, good price!"

    Back when I'll betcha a dozen "ripples" would get you a case of Ripple...

    It was some nasty brew if you had to drink it warm.

    A bottle of Boones Farm or Annie Green Springs "Strawberry Hill" was a must if you expected your girlfriend to go out with you.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.
